The Ioniq 6 electric sedan from Hyundai is supposed to be introduced in 2022 as a 2023 model

The Ioniq 6 will be the second model in Hyundai’s new Ioniq sub-brand
Hyundai is trying to expand its new Ioniq lineup of electric vehicles at a rapid pace. The first vehicle of the brand, the Ioniq 5 hatchback will be available for sale early in 2022, the Ioniq 6 compact sedan should follow in 2023 and the Ioniq 7 large SUV has already been teased.
Since it hasn’t been publicly unveiled yet, we don’t know exactly what the upcoming Ioniq 6 will look like, but a spy video capturing a camouflage-wearing Ioniq 6 gives us a better idea of what to expect.
The car looks to be about the same size as Hyundai’s own Elantra compact sedan and its roofline is also similar to its gasoline powered cousin.
Under the camouflage, the daytime-running lights can be seen and they look to be a white horizontal line, possibly underlining the main headlamps.
The taillamps are also partially visible and they are also a single line of red light, possibly stretching across the whole rear like a light bar, but from what we can seen, they could also be two separate units which would be reminiscent of Genesis’ design.
The wheels are not camouflaged at all, so they might not be the final design, but they appear to be quite aerodynamic, so they have been engineered for an electric car.
The Ioniq 6 will be built on Hyundai’s E-GMP plateform which will also be used by the Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6, meaning the Ioniq 6 will probably share most of its mechanical elements with these vehicles.
This means it will most likely be available in RWD and AWD configurations and its range could be around 300 miles (482 kilometers) for the RWD version and 270 miles (434 kilometers) when equipped with a second motor.
